pwabled on for 25 minutes about a wild story of two intruders, a man and woman that bust into the bathroom while they were in there and held her for a while but then let her go and said don't tell anybody, and off she went, and she said off i went and i was too scared to say anything, so i had a tkaeudate another guy in the next 24 hours. >> and is the manson kind of guy. >> the other dude did it. >> yeah, or a group of other dudes did it, and particularly graphic and bloody murder scenes. that's what she tried and hoped the police would believe, and they didn't because the physical investigator backs it up. >> they are saying, are you sure? this is the story you want to stick with, because this is really bad? >> there's always a hail mary pass, and maybe something will come up that she was a battered
woman defending herself and she had to slash his throat 27 times and shoot him in the face and then take pictures of it, maybe there's something -- i am a little skeptical. pardon my skeptical. >> i think, wow, that does sound open and shut and i remember o.j. and casey and so many other slam dunkers, and they are not so much a slam dunker. you have a great weekend. >> you, too. >> in the meantime, enjoy your football. suzanne malveaux is coming up next. welcome to "news room international," and we are taking you around the world in 60 minutes. this is what is going on right now. this is turkey outside the u.s. embassy where a bomb went off and killed a security guard. police say it was a suicide
bomber, and we're live from turkey in just a minute. and here in the united states, cnn now confirming just moments ago, secretary of energy steven chu is resigning, and he is the latest cabinet member to inform the president he will not stay for a second term. and there are reports that there are a number of officials making announcements as well. and hillary clinton's last day as secretary of state, and she said she is ready for some rest after logging almost a million miles in the air. editors at the wall street journal say there are hackers in china, and they were trying to find out how the wall street journals was covering stories in china. and newspapers say they have now
beefed up their cyber security. we are also watching the markets, your money, as well. the dow hit 14000. it's the first time that the dow has reached 14000 since 2007. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. tell us how it happened. >> it's the jobs number that was pretty strong. it showed january's job reports, 157,000 jobs were added to the economy, but the way wall street sees it, it came in soft. wall street is looking at it at a more broader view, and they are looking at the momentum from november and december, and you are seeing a stronger trend continue, so that's good news obviously. but then again there has been an underlying optimism already in the market, and that's being
fueled by the federal reserve. and that's buying up mortgage backed treasury and securities, and that's driving interest rates lower so the best game in town as far as investors see it to make money is here in the stock market, and it's driving investors to the stock market. and what moved the needle, it was the jobs number, and how the next milestone for the dow will be the all-time high, and first we will see if it can hold at 14000 at the close, and then we will see what happens. >> how much confidence do we have in this rally? >> some say not much, and others say stocks are making a comeback and the economy is doing that as well. one well known economist talks
about this, and here is what he had to say. >> i think this pret indicates an improvement, and it's a signal that at least investors in the market believe that the economy is going to grow at a decent rate this year, and certainly it doesn't mean we are anywhere back to where we were in 2007. >> and then, of course, there are the bears of the market, the more skeptical, and this rally that we are looking at is a correction waiting to happen, and economic growth was in the negative in the final quarter of last year, and the fed, the fed keeps pumping up the numbers here when you see stocks, and many people believe they want to see if stocks can stand on their own once the fed stops pouring
phupb into the economy. >> all right. alison, thank you. in turkey, a suicide bombing at the u.s. embassy. broken glass, ambulances, gaping hole in the outside wall of the embassy compound, the bomber took one person with him, a turkish security guard in the last, and we will go live to i have -- ivan watson. >> reporter: this is a turkish citizen, and now the man they
believe is a man namedtionly, and he was a man of a group that translates to the revolutionary peoples' liberation party front. there's video of him from 1997 when he was arrested and convicted for attacking a turkish police. there has been a long history of leftist groups carrying out violent attacks particularly against turkish security forces, and this particular group, the turkish police arrested scores of their members last month and on top of that these groups tend to have an anti-american ideology as well, and there's anger within the leftist circles in turkey about the deployment
of 400 patriot soldiers and missiles to help protect america's close ally turkey from the missile attacks from neighboring syria, all possible motives behind the deadly bombing on the u.s. embassy. >> was the u.s. embassy the target of the bombing? >> it looks like it. there's no question the main bunker, the gates that the visitors had to go through bore the brunt the blast, and the security guard was killed and he was a turkish citizen and another woman wounded and the u.s. ambassador stepped out with the governor and had this to say. take a listen. >> right now we are all dealing with our sadness at the loss of our fellow member of our embassy, and we salute his
bravery, and his service to turkey and turkish-american friendship and our hearts go out to his family. >> reporter: suzanne, this is not the first time the u.s. diplomatic mission has been attacked. in 2008 gunmen attacked the con s -- con sue hrut. >> thank you very much. we are also following a nearby lebanon story, and officials are talking about flights that come two days after an israeli air strike inside syria. >> reporter: it's not unusual here, but reports of an air strike by israel inside syria,
and they believe the battered regime may be trying to move weaponry away from the rebels. and syria has its own version of events. they blamed israel for an air strike outside of damascus. an adviser to former prime minister sharon says this. >> this is part of the whole system built in syria to support the development and the operations of weapons of mass destruction which include long-range missiles, and it's a strategic balance. >> reporter: u.s. sources says israel only struck once and targeted a convoy, and questions remain as to who was responsibility for hitting the facility and killing two people inside. analysts say no matter where the
strike was, it was a clear message to syria. >> whether israel made the strike or somebody else, i think it was a wake-up call, a warning signal -- a wake-up call to the world and a warning signal to the syrians and all the groups who are now trying to seize those weapons that this issue is not going to go without a response. >> reporter: the syrian government summed the head of the u.n., and according to a semiofficial iranian news agency the deputy foreign minister says israel's attack will have dire consequences on tel aviv, and that's raising the temperature aross the region. >> sarah, joining us live. first of all, israel being threatened by syria and iran.
how serious are they taking the threats? >> reporter: anytime they receive a threat it is taken serious and heightens concerns around the country. analysts say they are not sure right now looking at the situation inside syria for example if that regime can do anything but try to protect itself, and when it comes to iran that's a different matter, and again they are dealing with heavy sanctions and they have their own problem and whether or not these threats will turn into actions is a whole different matter and they are waiting to see what will happen, and we know today today we were hearing from the lebanese that they did see more israeli planes over lebanon. >> we appreciate it. on cnn.com you can join the conversation with anderson cooper and sanjay gupta, and they are having an online about guns, and it's about gun
violence in america. so please join in now at cnn.com. here is more of what we are working on for this hour of "news room international," and we are looking at china, where a truck load of fireworks explodes and blows out a bridge. later, the fab four like you have never seen before. a treasure trove of unseen beatles images like never before. oil changes at meineke are always a great deal.
then you're going to love this. right now they're only $14.95! wow-a grt deal just got a whole lot better. hurry. $14.95 won't last. in china rescue mission is underway after a truck carrying fireworks exploded and it happened on a highway bridge. the blast was so powerful part of the bridge collapsed sending dozens of cars plunging to the ground 100 feet down. eight people were killed at least and 18 others hurt. and in france, french forces have been battling islamist militants there for three weeks. tomorrow hollande will meet with
ma llan. those troops have been able to push the extremist. in the uk, there will not be charges filed to the prank call to the hospital from duchess, kate middleton. two talk show hosts called the hospital as a joke. days later the nurse that tookle call committed suicide, and prosecutors say there's no evidence to charge the hosts with manslaughter. and they formed their own neighborhood watch. they are not looking for criminals but looking for people that are breaking sharia law on
drinking. >> a hard-line vigilante group is trying to impose sharia law on members of the public. it's not just drinkers being targeted. >> you are gay. >> and women wearing skirts above the knee are also being harass harassed. only a handful of men are involved in the patrols and five have been arrested on suspicious on harassment. we have talked to others that have not been picked up by police. they do share many of the same hard-line beliefs as those arrested. >> alcohol is causing so many problems, and it causes crime and it causes people miss
behaving. >> would you condemn the more intimidating roles? >> i am not here to condemn anybody's action, and i am just here to say this is's a problem. >> reporter: those doing the patrols are reveling in the media spotlight, and those involved, that group is very small. most people here in this area want nothing to do with the srepb vigilant vigilantes. >> it has done a huge amount of damage to the community, and it will no doubt increase islamic phobia. >> reporter: patrols have been stepped up as authorities have taken a hard line. >> we will not accept such
behavio behavior. >> reporter: another so-called patrol stands outside a polling station vowing to stop the participation. in spain, hard line groups have angered locals by depending pet dogs abandon from neighborhood, and several dogs have been poisoned. they warned their communities need to integrate better into society to stop extremism. in a speech one said we have been treating our communities like foreign embassieembassies, too long cultural sensitivities have often led our leaders to become morally blind. but there is evidence that the lack of integration is partly because in many cities across
europe white people are moving away from ethnically mixed neighborhoods. >> you can get a change that is quite dramatic in the character of an area, and here in london between 2001 and 2011, one-third of the white population has left. >> reporter: enormous demographic changes resulting in profound challenges like the so-called muslim patrols which the communities themselves are now trying to tackle. cnn, london. we have live pictures here, breaking news happening out of cairo. this is actually taking place now. these pictures, these are the streets and they are erupting now, we understand, with water cannons and tear-gas, and this is outside the presidential palace, as the scene there is turning violent. we will have a live report out of cairo after this break. .... director's voice: cut it!

[ male announcer ] when you wear dentures you may not know it, but your mouth is under attack. food particles infiltrate
there are rocks and molotov cocktails being thrown over the walls there. and you have a fire that is burning at the entrance of the palace here, and we're not exactly sure what is burning but there is a fire, and clearly all the protests against the government, real frustration against the government there, people are unemployed and do not have the kinds of freedoms they expected after overturning the former president, and again, violence erupting in the streets of cairo. we will try to bring our live reporter up as soon as possible. we are keeping a close eye on that, and we are looking at what is taking place in iran. it's a big topic, and this is happening in cafes and living rooms, and it's about a movie, this movie is not something that iranian people are -- they are not even allowed to see it, and
it's "argo," the oscar-nominated movie about the rescuing of hostages, and we learned this week despite the ban thousands and thousands of people inside iran have seen the movie, and how is this happening? it's a phenomena, right? how does that happen they are able to see the forbidden movie, and it seems very popular. >> that's so true, suzanne. and the iranian people, they are so resilient and have the curiosity that extends beyond their borders, and even though politically it might be marginalized, they will find out what happening, and it's happening in circles of progressive circles, right? it's on college campuses and people on the front line of history when the hole hostage crisis unfolded and it's the
people talking about it, not the people working in the fields, but it's a huge topic of conversation within the specific circles, certainly. >> and you have family in iran, and you know how things work and people communicate, and how does it start, there's a film out and we need to see it? >> it's always under the veil. what i mean by that, there's a movie out and somebody wants to see it, you can't go to the blockbuster, even though we don't have them here either, but you say i want to see a video and they tell another friend and it's hand to hand and back back to backpack, and you have a copy of the video. it's word of mouth. >> iranian has problems with the story line and say it's not an accurate portrayal. what do the people who get the bootleg copies of these think?
>> well, it's a whole issue that they have with hollywood, per se. it's the anti-american sentiment is heightened and the stereotypes are blown out of proportion, right? this is more or less the issue going on. we saw in the movie "not without my daughter kwrt " in 1991, anda continuation of the narratives. >> and the people with a bootleg copy, does the government come after you and enforce it or ignore it? >> it's the big elephant in the room. and everybody knows what is happening. i watched the "titanic" for the first time on a vhs tape, and the video crashed more times than the ship sank, and i was like finally, end of movie. appreciate it. and the commissioner of the
nfl is about to come out and face the media and possibly the tough questions about the future of the sport. we will bring that to you live as soon as it starts.

and first up, they talked about the u.s. embassy attack in turkey with merkel. >> i also really appreciate your expression of sim bough thae for the attack on the embassy. and to the best of our knowledge, there has been some injured. we don't have the detail yet. but it reinforces what has been the case since i have been in public life, particularly the last 15 years, and the very close counterterrorism cooperation that exists between germany and the united states. >> during his visit to germany the vice president holds talks on syria and the terrorists threat in north africa. from germany it's on to france and then the uk. in mexico crews are searching for people that might be trapped after an explosion at a state oil company.
the blast killed at least 32 people, injured more than 100. no word on the cause yet. the attorney general's office is still investigating. ten years ago we lost the crew of space shuttle "columbia." these are the seven men and women that took off from florida's kennedy space center on a launch that investigators say damaged the shuttle's left wing. it broke up when it re-entered the atmosphere at the end of the mission. and pieces scattered over texas and louisiana and seven crew members died. today nasa paid tribute to the 17 men and women killed in all three of the space agency's fatal accidents. the intensity of a good football game. when can it be too much? not just physical stress but emotional stress can lead to
cardiovascular disease. the stress from floods or earthquakes can trigger heart attacks and death, but the super bowl, they found a super bowl loss by the l.a. rams was associated with more cardyy deaths. the rams' loss to the steelers was a nail-biter. and over eating and drinking and smoking may be part of the problem. >> all of these things lead to the disturbances in the heart rate and how the heart is working. >> he has advice with people with heart disease. >> pay attention particularly to not getting carried away. >> this precaution applies to all smokers and anybody with high cholesterol, high blood

nfl commissioner, roger goodell, is delivering his super bowl week conference. what do we expect the kinds of questions he will get, and i imagine a lot will be about player safety? >> player safety, suzanne, certainly. you know he is on new orleans' soil, he is in the city and it should be very spicy if you want to pardon the new orleans-related pun. this session could be how many saints or reporters that cover the saints are able to ask the commissioner. many people are not in necessarily fans of roger goodell here in new orleans dating back to the bountygate
scandal, and sean payton was suspended for the entire season and payton has urged saints' fans to give the commissioner a warm welcome during super bowl weekend. it has been a tough couple years for the commissioner, with what began with the players' lockout and the new collective bargaining agreement and that was followed by a referee lockout and then the debacle that we saw involving the replacement referees. those topics will come up, and player safety, 4,000 lawsuits out there concerning player safety and the concussion issue, and there's a lot on his plate, but the nfl owners gave the commissioner a ten-year contract extension, and this is what he is paid to do to go in front of the media and talk to the good and the bad when it comes to the national football league. >> let's listen in and hear some
of the questions he is taking. >> we want to pioneer new approaches to player safety that emphasize prevention as well as treatment, and this will include the commitment to supporting our retired players. those are some of the priorities. from the quality of our game to growing fan interests and engagement to our commitment to evolve and integrate. i could not be more optimistic or ready to go. it's also terrific for us to be back here in new orleans. our tenth super bowl here, and the first since katrina. and it's clear this city is back bigger and better than ever. our very heartfelt thanks to the mayor, mitchell andrew, and james and mary, and the host

been a priority in the nfl, and we will continue to make it a priority and you have our commitment and the players have our committeement we will do that, and i started playing the game in fourth grade in washington, d.c., and i love the game of football and i started as a fan, but i would not give back one day of playing tackle football. the benefits of playing football, teaching you the values, teaching you character, teaching you how to get up when you are knocked down, how to work with teamwork, and their extraordinary lessons in life that i use to this day. >> the commissioner addressing some of the safeties of the sport, and the president weighing in on this as well, and we are two days away from the big game. and cnn is live in new orleans with the take on the biggest event in the country, and we have much, much more. join us for the kickoff in new

journalists out to russia, and got a chance to see interesting sites, and a close-up look at hillary clinton, and one of the things that stood out in my mind, not the temples and all of that, but this moment in kazakhstan, and she was presented with a whip, and normally it's just the men that carries the whips with them, and she was considered so powerful as a first lady and she was presented with one of them, and she got a kick out of that, and there were a lot of jokes that followed that. >> right. we used to call them remember the hillary clinton trips. and they were under the radar, and there was some coverage but not as much, so you could really get to know her. it was a small group. and there was very interesting times. of course i have been following
her for the past four years at the state department. >> jill, you actually said something that was pretty interesting earlier today and you wrote a whole article about it, and nobody saw her sleep. you never knew if you saw her get sleep during those trips, and she travelled the world, and always always on the go, and really somebody who behind the facade, if you will, the mask, when it came off and it was down time, and she was not in front of the cameras, very warm and friendly and almost maternal in a way. >> she is, and she has a very good sense of humor. and you are sitting on the plane, and if she was not too far away up in the front you could hear like a gafa, and it was usually her laughing about something. she has the image of being serious and scholarly, and behind the scenes, as you and i know, she's a lot of fun. >> yeah, i will never forget we
were exhausted from that trip to russia, and i celebrated my 30th birthday, and i fell asleep and somebody tapped me on the shoulder and woke me up, and it was the first lady with the birthday cake, and she led in a round of happy birthday singing to us, and i don't know where she got the cake but it was pretty resourceful. and she was always like that. >> and a lot of people under awe, you know, after all, hillary clinton is really historic, and i have seen one case where hillary clinton was awed by another person, and that would have to be the human rights supporter who had been in the house that we visited for so many years under house arrest, and hillary clinton drove up and they embraced so warmly. it was really an incredible time. a very, very moving thing.
and clinton herself just looked as if she had really seen a star, a historic person, and hillary clinton, as you know, is a rock star anyway, and it was an amazing moment. >> jill, you have been covering her since 1993, and an amazing job you have done at the state department as well, and it's good to reminisce and see what her next moves are, and we might find out if 2016, what are in her sights, and hillary clinton led the state department over the past four years, and we will bring that speech to you live here. and we review her successes and failures as secretary of state and also seeing her chances of becoming the first female president. you will not want to miss that. this is out of cairo. these are the streets of cairo.
following out of egypt. thousands have gathered outside the presidential palace in cairo, and let's go to the reporter on the ground. ben, set the scene for us. what are you seeing on the streets? >> reporter: we just got back, suzanne, from the presidential palace where we saw young men throwing molotov cocktails over the walls of the palace and throwing rocks, and there was a large fire at the main gate of the palace. you need to put this in context. it's as if thousands of people gathered outside the white house and are essentially trying to get in. now, the security forces did come in with tear-gas and large trucks trying to clear them away, but it seems that's attracting more and more people to this scene. now we were -- we spent a good deal of the afternoon in front of the palace, and it was by and large pretty quiet. there was a demonstration of
several thousand people who were chanting against the regime, or rather the government of president mohamed morsi, but they were in good terms with the riot police outside, but as the sun went down the atmosphere changed, and malotov cocktails were thrown over the wall, and then the upper house of the parliament or senate, and clearly the anger against the muslim brotherhood from the government of the morsi-led government, and he has put out a statement on twitter where he says the security forces will act to protect government institutions. he says the government holds those political forces responsible who participated in
the demonstration for the violence, and they call for those forces to with draw their members immediately from around the presidential palace and call a halt to the violence and it has become tense here in cairo, and there has been demonstrations in alexandria and, along the canal, and so a very turbulent evening in egypt tonight. >> ben, we will get back to you as the evening develops there. i believe it's 7:54 there in cairo, and police keep us posted about whether or not there are any injures, and whether or not the streets quiet down or how it turns out, and clearly a lot of people are angry with the government of president morsi, and already we are seeing quite a bit of activity outside of the presidential palace. thank you sremuch, ben.

but what was so frustrating is they have no real advancements on who did this. a brazen attack, 9:00 in the morning, across the street from a small-town courthouse. it has rattled the nerves of law enforcement here. they are begging for help. there's a $64,000 reward for any tip that might help them find who was behind this. >> any evidence or anything that suggests this might have been out of revenge over a case that he prosecuted in the past? >> caller: you know, they are looking at those cases now, both passed and present. he would have had a caseload of about 380 cases according to his boss. there's a lot of cases going on. he has been a prosecutor for years. he put a way a lot of bad guys. there's speculation it could have been a revenge killing or some kind of killing related to a case he worked on, and they don't know yet but they are poring through the cases that
would lead them to the clues that would lead them in the right direction, but anything now is just speculation. and let's head to alabama, where police are in a bizarre standoff. police believe a midland city man is holding a boy hostage. this boy, he snatched him from the school bus after shooting the driver and killing him, and the man has been identified, and his neighborhoods are speaking out and are curious about what is taking place. listen to this. >> i hope they get you and i hope you live the rest of your life from prison and you never see the date of line again, and you will pay what you did to this little boy and that bus driver. >> right now in midland city, alabama, george joins us. this is day four. what do we know about the condition of the little boy? >> reporter: the latest that we
got from the investigators, the boy is unharmed. that's the best information we have been able to get. the investigators and police are tight-lipped about any information that they release on the situation, and one thing we have been doing, you know, all day, is just keeping a close eye on what is happening here on the property, and just watching the activity because they are not really telling us a lot. they do say the boy is okay, physically unharmed, but this is a scary situation that people want to see revolved. >> there's a lot of attention about the bus driver, a hero, really, that tried to protect the kids on the bus and refused to give them over and shot dead, and his family now is speaking today? >> reporter: well, suzanne, that's the thing, they were planning to release the statement today but even the statement was shut down, so reiterating the fact that the law enforcement here, they are keeping a very, very close --
keeping everything very concealed. they don't want a lot of information to get out as we begin this operation. >> do we have a sense of why they are being so tight-lipped? is there something taking place, hostage negotiations where they think if the media reports the details it will set the guy off or ruin what they are trying to manage here? >> reporter: you know, they are even sensitive about the pictures that are shown out here, and they are very sensitive about anything, any information that comes out. they do say the negotiations are continuing, and one would presume that they don't want a lot of information out because if he has electricity or a television, they don't want him to see anything that is happening around him. >> all right, george, we appreciate it. new yorkers remembering ed koch. he died this morning of congestive heart failure. he serves as three terms of mayor of new york, and is
credited for saving new york from bankruptcy. bloomberg says koch was one of new york's best. >> he really made the city what it is today and his successes have been building their careers on him, and ed was the mayor, and we almost lost the extraordinary building back in the '70s, and at that time the whole city was crumbling and then we elected ed koch, and he was a civic savior for our city in for times. >> after he left officer, koch was in radio and a judge on "the peoples' court." and he had a cameo on "sex in the city."
>> they couldn't get ed koch? >> what's the problem. >> there he is down the runway. one of the many times he appeared as himself, and former mayor, ed koch, 88 years old, and his funeral will be monday. here is also what we are working on for this hour. he is being called a liar. what an "american idol" wannabe told the judges. and we are calling about culver came out saying he doesn't want gay men in the locker room, but now other players are not accepting the apologize. and a look at the interactive ads that will keep you involved all during the big game. .. but when i started losing energy and became moody... that's when i had an honest conversation with my doctor. we discussed all the symptoms...
then he gave me some blood tests. showed it was low t. that's it. it was a number -- not just me. [ male announcer ] today, men with low t have androgel 1.62% (testosterone gel). the #1 prescribed topical testosterone replacement therapy, increases testosterone when used daily. women and children should avoid contact with application sites. discontinue androgel and call your doctor if you see unexpected signs of early puberty in a child, or signs in a woman, which may include changes in body hair or a large increase in acne, possibly due to accidental exposure. men with breast cancer or who have or might have prostate cancer, and women who are or may become pregnant or are breastfeeding, should not use androgel. serious side effects include worsening of an enlarged prostate, possible increased risk of prostate cancer, lower sperm count, swelling of ankles, feet, or body, enlarged or painful breasts, problems breathing during sleep, and blood clots in the legs. tell your doctor about your medical conditions and medications, especially insulin, corticosteroids, or medicines to decrease blood clotting. so...what do men do when a number's too low?
turn it up! [ male announcer ] in a clinical study, over 80% of treated men had their t levels restored to normal. talk to your doctor about all your symptoms. get the blood tests. change your number. turn it up. androgel 1.62%. whoa! you really feel all 335 foot-pounds of torque. it's chevy truck month! silverado was also recognized for the lowest cost of ownership. hey, what are you gonna do with it? end table. oh.
[ male announcer ] it's chevy truck month. now get 0% financing for 60 months, plus trade up to get $1,750 total allowance on a silverado all-star edition. or trade up and choose customer cash plus option package discount for a total value of $7,250. record-breaking $7 billion. that is how much was spent on the 2012 political campaigns and that's enough to by 20 boeing 757s, or 50 private islands. that includes president obama
and mitt romney as well as congressional candidates around the country. committees like the rnc and dnc spent $22 billion, and super packs spent another $22 billion, and election officials are still adding that number up, and this could be the first time outside groups spent more than political parties. huh recall doua huh raueral. he could be a candidate. he supports gay rights and gay marriage. he already scoped out his potential opponents. check it out. >> i am and i have been in touch with some people in the republican party in new jersey, and i am truly contemplating running for senate against frank
lattenburg or cory booker. >> that should be an interesting race. secretary hillary clinton is hours away from leaving office. she says she is ready for rest after logging almost a million miles in the air as the nation's top diplomat. she is set to deliver her farewell speech in the next hour to the folks that she said in the department over the last four years, and her successor, john kerry, will be signed into office. and then a vocal supporter for alternative energy, and that made him the target of some conservatives and oil. why is he stepping down? do we know? >> reporter: he served a full term and it's not unusual for a
cabinet member to say it's time to get out, and the president wants to look at the energy policy reform and it wouldn't hurt for him to have somebody in that position that is not a prize-winning scientist, but somebody more politically savvy and can help navigate congress. >> have we heard from the president or the white house on his resignation? >> reporter: yes, jay carney opened up his speech saying thousand, and the president said thanks to steve we expanded support for our brightest engineers and ontras they pursu ground breaking innovations. i am grateful that steve agreed to join in my cabinet and i wish him all the best in the future. the stimulus bill had millions for green energy ventures
including new batteries and the u.s. has sort of pioneered some of the new inventions. >> it will be interesting to see who the president picks in his replacement. another thing, and i know you are following the big announcement today out of the white house. changing the controversial health care policy that required religious organizations to provide birth control coverage for women, and i believe the white house is changing its position. explain how and why. >> reporter: the department of health and human services are defining how they are interpreting the rule and it means that any religious organization now does not have to offer contraception directly to their employees if they object to that, instead the insurance company they work with will provide it. the religious organization is left out of the mix and bypassed if they object, so the woman can still get the coverage, but not with the religious
organization's involvement. if the insurer also objects, they created a work around from that, too. she can get it from a separate insurance company. the question outstanding is who ends up paying? the government is maintaining nobody ends up paying because the costs all come out in the wash. the bottom line is, women will still get contraceptive coverage for free, and the religious organizations will not have to provide it. >> thank you very much. a cornerback for the 49ers say gays cannot be in the locker room, and now he is taking the harsh words back, but is it enough? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do.

>> no, no gay people on the team. they have to get up out of here, can't do with that sweet stuff. >> is that true? >> yeah. >> they might be able to play? >> no. no. >> no? >> can't be in the locker room. nah. >> now he is apologizing. brian todd has more on the fallout. >> reporter: he is an obscure reserve defensiveback who stole the lines at the super bowl. he was asked by a radio show about his feelings towards gays? >> i don't do the gay guys, man? >> are there any on the 49ers? >> they don't got no gay people on the team. they got to get up out of here if they do. can't be within that sweet stuff. >> reporter: within hours, he was asked what he would say to the team's hometown, one of the world's most tolerant cities in
the gay community. >> that's ugly comments, and that's not what i feel in my heart. >> reporter: there was a statement saying the team rejects his comments and addressed the matter with them. >> he regrets that. that's not who he is and not who he believes in. >> but he is part of the alpha male culture in the locker room. so far no athlete in any professional team in the u.s. has come out while actively playing. >> the wade davis came out. >> it's the mao prove you are t and that notion is very present in the nfl and locker room. >> davis says he does not see a player coming out in pro sports
for koppco couple years. ravens linebacker has spoke out out recent weeks about equality in marriage and other recent issues. >> a lot of reaction on twitter. tennis great writes, he is just ignorant. that's all. culver will learn, i am sure. and don ryan writes, if chris culver isn't suspended by roger goodell, then i am absolutely embarrassed to be part of a league that accepts this type of behavior. and former nfl quarterback, rodney pete says his comments are a sign of how ignorant and uneducated people are in our society today. and on "american idol," they look for talent and have to look for honesty. how one idol hopeful is being

we just learned scott brown has decided not to run for senate in the special election in massachusetts. we want to talk about the significance of this, paul. it's kind of a surprise. there was a lot of speculation that he was going to go for that seat. >> yeah, this was the biggest question in campaign news this year, would brown return to the senate. he succeeded the seat for ted kennedy but lost to elizabeth warn in the election, and the question was will he make that bid in june because this will fill the seat of john kerry, and the answer is no, he will not be making a bid for senate, and
maybe a chance to run for governor or trying to make money in the private sector. i think democrats will breathe a sigh of relief, and it's a better chance to keep the seat in democratic hands. >> all about the balance. hiring continued at a slow and staedy pace, and employers added 157,000 jobs in january and that's slower than the 196,000 jobs added in december. unemployment rate ticked up slightly to 7.9%, and construction was one of the strongest sectors to add jobs thanks to the rebound in the housing market. and you are probably going to like what you see. in morning the dow hit 14000, and it has been bouncing around that mark all day, and it's the
first time since october of 2007. alison, tell us what that means? >> some people say it doesn't amount to a hill of beans and it's a nice round number we like to talk about and they say it's a correction waiting to happen because they believe the rally is not real and the economy is still not strong. look what happened in the fourth quarter, the last three months of last year, economic growth went backwards and even though we are seeing improvement on the jobs front it's not robust enough, and they say this is a market that really is being propped up by the federal reserve which is pushing interest rates down and pushing investors to come to the best rate yet, and some say wait a minute, this is a good reminder we are coming back from when the bottom pretty much fell out of the economy, and we can remember the most recent low for the dow was at 6500 in 2009.
both sides agree when you look at the 14000 up in lights on the board, it does instill confidence in the common investor and consumer and makes them feel better about the economy when they see that up there and that could in turn help the economy grow even more. >> thank you. good news. there will not be charges filed in the prank call to the hospital room of the duchess of cambridge. two radio talk show hosts called the hospital pretending to be the queen. days later the nurse that took the call committed suicide. british prosecutors say there's no evidence to charge those radio hosts with manslaughter. turning now from a prank to what could be an out right lie, we're not sure. it involves this guy, matt farmer, auditioning here for
"american idol." >> ♪ ♪ i know change is gonna come >> he told a story about his military story in iraq, and our correspondent has been digging into it, and there's question as to whether or not this is true, right? >> yeah, right now it looks like he was hurt while serving in the military, but the question is whether he was wounded by an ied. at first it was an typical "american idol" contestant stories, and he had a young daughter with him and telling of his service in iraq, and take a look at that. >> we were on a mission in iraq, and we came across an ied, and it exploded. i just remember waking up in the
hospital in kuwait. i was diagnosed with traumatic brain injury. it's when your brain goes through, like, a severe concussion. >> so he sang for the judges. you heard him earlier. he was very good. he was given a ticket to go to hollywood, but after the episode air aired, a website claimed farmer was not injured by an ied. they looked at allegations from men that served with him. i should point out like so many things on the allegations, it came with the names of the men that were making them, and when you put a face to the allegations they lend a little more credibility. >> is he saying he made this up? initially he said there was editing done by the producers.
>> guardian of valor is running a response they say is from him, and it's the second response they say they got from him. this latest response is where he admits that he was not wounded by an ied, but that the statement is not the one that was blaming the show for changing the story, and the statement we are still working on right now and trying to confirm says the show took some of his statements out of context, but that he says he has had a problem about lying from a long time ago, and he also says he is no longer affiliated with the show, and he was advised not to talk but felt he needed to get this out and says in fact the story was not true. >> any reactions from the judges to all this? >> not yet. i put in a call to randy jackson and have not heard from him, and fox has not gotten back to us yet. this is not the first time a confestant on one of the shows tried this. we have seen it time and time
again, and it seems like the story in the end always gets found out. arrow smith, fighting for the celebrity rights, how he can become the face of the paparazzi bill. and behind the hoax that broke manti te'o's heart, and he tells dr. phil he is in love with te'o. red lobster's 30 shrimp. wow, that's a lot of shrimp.

not getting nothing and made the decision i couldn't do it anymore. >> and then that started the tragic story of the girlfriend dying on the same day his grandmother died because looked into as a hoax. >> this is a compulsive liar that pretended to be another person for several years, that he would suddenly open up and become honest with dr. phil. i am not sure how much we can trust out of tuiasosopo's mouth. >> truthfully, honestly, he had no involvement. >> the heisman trophy runner-up admitted on the katie curic show he lied, but after he realized he was a victim of deception. >> that was real. the pain and the sorrow, that was all real.

a u.s. senator denies taking free trips, says he never partied with prostitutes, and we are talking about new jersey democrat, robert menendez. he insists those are political attacks. susan candiotti, she has the story. >> reporter: was it more than a warm caribbean breeze that brought him to the resort? a mysterious tipster that calls himself peter williams claims menendez was doing much more, partying with prostitutes. unidentified women alleged they were with the senator. this week the story added cat
and mouse e-mails reported to be between williams and an fbi agent between last august and december. the agent never appears to get a meeting with williams. at one point the fbi agent allegedly writes as far as the information you have provided we have been able to confirm most of it, however it's unknown what the information is. last april a washington d.c. watchdog group was contacted by the elusive mr. williams but never could substance kwraeut his claims and referred the matter to the fbi in july. and menendez denies he has been with prostitutions in the caribbean. >> i have told you how i feel about the source of this stuff, and it's really very, very typical for the -- >> after reid's aide says menendez failed to tell reid
after the trips to the caribbean, he distanced himself a bit. >> he is an outstanding senator and now from chair in the chicago. >> but the fbi is asking about the wealthy friend and campaign donor, and his jet like this one was the one the senator used to fly. they raided tan office this wee, and carried away boxes. along with a watchdog group in washington who said it was unanyone to verify his information, cnn reached out to peter williams, if that's his real name.
we received one reply offering more information but have not heard back since. susan candiotti, cnn, new york. if you watch the super bowl for the commercials like me, you will love this. this is a look at interactive ads that will keep you involved during the big game. but phillips' caplets don't. they have magnesium. for effective relief of occasional constipation. thanks.

course, to be more than just a single screen experience because the promoters have social media and interactive stuff going on. not my specialty, but it's mario's specialty that knows all things techie, and you are a big ravens' fan, yeah? >> what gave it away? >> you are all decked out, huh? >> we are in serious ravens fever. baltimore loves our team and we are proud they are in the super bowl and want to see them bring the super bowl trophy home. >> i will be rooting for the ravens as well. what do you have there? >> a lot of things are going on. used to be only you would watch ads and things like that on tv and now the whole second screen experience, many fans will be using devices to watch the game and interact with it as well. one quick app i want to show you, and this one is called like bowl, and so people can go on
and like their favorite team or share their favorite team and it scores points and the challenge is social media, is baltimore a more social media town than san francisco or vice versa, and that's hot. and another one is vine bowl. it's cool because it enables you to shoot 6-second videos that you can run on a clip of your -- of rooting for your team. so the most videos out there is the challenge. who can show the most support through these six-second video on vine. lots of cool activity that is happening online for sure, especially when it comes to not only the ads, but also the game and also social media. >> is it true you can watch the game on your phone, for the first time ever? how does that work? >> yes, and so as you can see this now, at cbssports.com, they're streaming the football game on their -- on the mobile devices, tablets, phones, laptop devices. you can see the halftime show
and you'll also -- here is another really neat thing. you can pick your own camera view. so there will be several cameras on the field. a sideline camera, a coach's view, an aerial view, different cameras you can choose to see the game from different perspectives. >> really? that is really cool. that is really, really cool. so i'm one of those people that will be watching the ads, watch the halftime show, that's going to be my focus. even the ads, right, you can interact with the ads as well? >> that's right. coca-cola, several ads you'll be able to interact with, just about all of them. at this point you have to interact with. the ads use to lead the mark marketing campaign. the ads would lead a marketing campaign, now with all the stuff online first to build a buzz and coca-cola has an interesting one where you can choose the ending, go to cokechase.com to their
website. you get to choose the ending that will appear in the super bowl. >> and so you choose the ending and then does it air? will it air on television, that ending? >> yeah. well, you're choosing it now. people need to go to cokechase.com and start liking which ending they prefer, and then that is the ending that will air. one other interactive thing you can do during the game is download a free app called shazzam. shazzam is the app you download when you can't figure out who the artist is or what the name of a song is. with the tv commercials, you'll see the little blue logo come up on the yads, download the app ad you'll get coupons ands offer and other content. >> that's smart stuff. i'm excited. you've convinced me, mario. you convinced me to get involved in all of this. >> it is a new way to explore the game. a new way to check it out. i think even if you're not a football fan this is one way for you to get engaged in the moment that is going to be 100 million people watching. >> that's going to be cool. all right.
mario, thanks. i'll check it out and try it out. we know that there -- oh, there you go! that's the real deal. that's a ravens fan, a baltimore ravens fan. you guys are crazy. thank you, mario. more than 12,000 football fans are now petitioning the white house to make monday after the super bowl a national holiday. that sounds pretty cool, right? sleep in after the game, after the party, the petition now is up on the white house.gov site. so far no response, no response from the white house. i think the president wouldn't mind. and sibling rivalry at its best. the coach of the baltimore ravens and the san francisco 49ers, they're brothers. this sunday they face off in the super bowl. the two, they held a news conference earlier today and john talked about how great his brother jim was. >> i would love to work for jim. i'd love it. it would be the greatest thing in the world. we almost made it happen at stanford at one time. and it would be an honor to have him on the staff.
a great coach. you always try to get great coaches and there is none better than jim harbaugh. i mean that seriously. there is no better coach in the national football league than this guy sitting right here. >> that's nice. before you watch the super bowl on sunday, find out what happens in new orleans. in the united states, where you live could determine your education, right? but there is a campaign to try to change that. former wnba star lisa leslie is leading the way. why she's shifting her way from basketball, her focus here on to education.

if you don't live in a good school district in the country, your kids are at risk of getting a poor education. well, some parents, they actually move to get their kids into a better school system. others enter their kids into a lottery hoping to get them into good schools. well, former wnba player lisa leslie says that is a gamble and she's trying to change it. i sat down with her to talk about that as well as much more and her mission to give kids better education very personal. >> i think being in the inner city with a single parent, i went to school, i had a 3.7 gpa and really struggled with the s.a.t. and thought why am i struggling if i'm such a great student. something must be wrong with our educational system or i'm just not really getting the best education i thought.
then it came back around with my kids, i have a 5-year-old daughter in kindergarten and we looked at the schools all around us, which school are we going to choose? so we picked up and moved. every family didn't have that opportunity to do that. my fight and my efforts now are for all the kids left behind who don't necessarily have the finances to move. shouldn't they get the same education as my daughter? >> some say why not focus on putting more money and more resources into public education in the schools that are in your own neighborhood? >> is more money really going to change the curriculum and what kids are learning? i'm not saying that there is one way is the right way, but we should have the choice. we choose our food, whether we want to have organic food or not, we choose our churches, we choose what car we drive, why can't we choose the education for our children? >> all right. i can't resist, because i have you here, i want to talk about everything. let's talk about sports, there is some pretty bizarre sports stories out there. >> there are.
